Description:
Dilip Rasiklal Doshi (born December 22, 1947, Rajkot, Gujarat) is a former Indian cricketer who played in 33 Tests and 15 ODI from 1979 to 1983.

Doshi was one of only two Test bowlers that played in their first Test after the age of thirty to take 100 wickets, the other being Clarrie Grimmett.

In Test Cricket

Doshi was already in his 30's when he made his long over due Test debut (At Chennai, against Australia). Having waited for so long, he didn't waste any time in making his presence felt. With figures of 6/103 & 2/64 he was India's best bowler in the match. He continued to perform well in the series and in the final test match at Mumbai, he was one of the heroes of an India victory with figures of 5/43 & 3/60. But perhaps, his greatest joy came, when he took 4/92 at Eden Garden, Calcutta, his (adopted) home town, in front of 70,000 strong crowd.

After this series, Doshi's place in the Indian Test team became permanent. Unfortunately, in the next few years Doshi failed to emerge as regular match winning bowler in the international level. He was accurate and consistent, but failed to show the killing instincts. His only match winning effort after the Aussie series came at Mumbai, against England, in 1981-82. His 5/39, helped India gain a vital first innings lead in a low scoring match.Emergence of Maninder Singh in 82-83 season hastened the end of Doshi's test career.
